Omar and Pete are half-brothers. When their parents are eaten by lions, they embark on a journey to find Omar’s real father. What follows is a funny, heart-warming journey of self-discovery for both boys…in Blackpool. The Choudray family represents a truly contemporary example of modern multicultural Britain – but what will the brothers make of their eccentric newfound family? In contrast to the old-fashioned stereotypes about Blackpool, the comedy is sharp, current and non-stop.
